Cassie Campbell, Owner of Femme Studio

"Mel was a saviour to the digital side of my business. I know I needed a website and had no where to start, I was having trouble with Facebook and I felt like I just had to give up.

Mel took over and gave me the most beautiful website, and took care of all of the social media issues that seemed impossible to me.

She did a wonderful job of taking my ideas and changing her initial design to match my style perfectly (even though she was not far off to begin with). She went above and beyond to make sure I got was I was looking for.

Having someone so professional and have such a great attitude taking care of the digital side of my business was such a weight off my shoulders. As a business owner I have enough to worry about day to day and having her on my team with such a huge asset! I would recommend to anyone looking for her services!"

Maria Doering, Screenprint Artist

"Mel Hattie is a talented, friendly and kind photographer. She came to my studio to photograph me in my work space and did a fantastic job. She directed me gently without pressure and in a conversational and natural way.

The photoshoot itself was a wonderful experience after which I felt confident in not just her abilities but also my own. I couldn’t be happier with the resulting photos and have used them for social media, press and applications since. You are amazing! Thank you, Mel!"
